MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 26, 2013

Very good recipe hubby loved them will make again.

MY REVIEW

Really enjoyed these. Used 1/2 tsp each of vanilla extract and almond extract , instead of just vanilla. Almond and cherries seems to be a winning combination.

MY REVIEW

My husband is from Michigan, so loved the addition of dried cherries from his native state to chocolate chip cookies. A winning combination!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 22, 2013

It would be helpful if explained that these cookies will spread and flatten tremendously while baking, thus the small portion being placed on baking sheet (perhaps due to my lack of baking cookies experience). I cut the recipe in half and used cranberries instead of cherries (cheaper) and I ALWAYS grease my baking sheets regardless of directions. Other than not looking very pretty, the taste is very good. I will try this recipe again just as a means of trying to perfect it.

These were really good! I feel less guilty eating these because of the oats, cherries and dark chocolate:) Kids liked them too!
